Coeds Will Sponsor Annual
Fresh Air Tag Day Next Year;
Funds To Provide Equipment
Assembly has chosen as its pro-
ject for 1946-47 the University Fresh
Air Camp, according to Phyllis Pet-
tit, Assembly projects chairman.
The 'organization will sponsor the
annual Fresh Air Camp Tag Day, anc
will inaugurate other projects to as-
sist in providing more much-needed
equipment for the benefit of the
Social Affairs Planned
Tentative plans made by Assembly
include a fall dance, picnics and
other social affairs, Miss Pettit said.
"We hope to be able to contribute
enough to the camp so that the prop-
erty will be available to student
groups for various types of projects
and entertainments," she said.
with board and lodging by the Uni-
versity, muc addition
Although campers are provided with
board and lodging by the Univer-
sity, much additional equipment, es-
pecially for sports, is needed by the
boys who attend.
Other plans for the camp as out-
lined by Miss Pettit include a picnic
combined with a work .drive, with
University students assisting in the
fixing and renovation of camp prop-
erty. The work day will be followed
by a picnic or dance.
Needy Boys Attend
Established 26 years ago by the
University, the camp is attended each
summer by boys from 9 to 13 years
of age. They are given several weeks
of rest, play, and healthful food and
exercises. Campers are chosen from
among needy boys living in Detroit
and throughout southwestern.Michi-
gan by social workers.
Approximately 240 boys attend each
summer, and are given opportunities
to swim, boat, and participate " in
many types of outdoor sports. The
camp occupies 300 acres near Pat-
terson Lake, approximately 25 miles
from Ann Arbor.
Student Counselors
Counselors for the group are chosen
from among University students, who
are given regular credit for the work
done at the camp. The student pro-
gram has been in effect for the past
nine years, during which the camp
has been under the supervision of
the Institute for Human Adjust-
"By adopting the Fresh Air Camp
as the Assembly project, we will be
able to help underprivileged children
who benefit from its operation, and
also provide a place where Univer-
sity groups can hold parties, carni-
vals, picnics, and other recreational
activities71 Miss Pettit concluded.

lately the editors have clamped down

Dick Kraus is also on the sports
staff and everyday threatens to write
a story. He's afraid that by doing so
he'll raise the writing standard so
high the rest of the staff won't be
able to keep up with it.
There are, however, some excellent
writers on the sports staff. The bet-

Annual gils


To Be Held

Union CounCi


On 'U' Campus June 25-- July


The fifth annual Wolverine Girls'
State will be held from June 25 to
July 2 on the University campus.
The state is to be attended by ap-
proximately 216 girls who will be
high school seniors this fall. The
project is under the direction of the
American Legion Auxiliary, and girls
are sent from all parts of Michigan.
Each girl is sent by a sponsor-
ing organization from her own
community, with that group paying
her expenses for the week. Quotas
have been set on the basis of popu-
lation for. the various regions of
the state.
Patterned originally after the Boys'
State, the girls' project has been
somewhat modified in organization.
A study of politics and government,
however, is included in the activities
scheduled for the girls.
All those attending will be divided
into groups representing the 13 orig-
inal colonies of the United States.
Government will be based on a sys-
tem of proportional representation
under a self-governing body. Leading
positions will be assigned by a peti-
tioning procedure.
Another feature of the Girls' State
is a complete survey of professions
open to women. Outstanding faculty
members and other Michigan citizens
will give talks on the opportunities
offered by each profession.
Information concerning the pre-

req uisities and education required
for each of the fields will be in-
corporated into the talks, Occu-
pational opportunities in nursing,
home economics, business admin-
istration, teaching, laboratory tech-
nician work, journalism, medicine,
and merchandising will be consid-
A consultant service has also been
planned where girls who wish to
talk further about various occupa-
tions open to women may discuss op-
portunities and plans for the future.
A recreational program will be set
up, and girls will be taught skills in
several sports, including tennis and
golf. Other opportunities for those
attending the state will include in-
struction in music appreciation, pho-
tography, and sculpturing.
Several types of parties have
been planned so that girls from
the various parts of Michigan may
meet each other and become better
The week's activities in govern-
ment, sports, skills, and recreational
training will be climaxed by an out-
door luncheon on Monday, July 1.
Following the luncheon a mass meet-
ing will be held at the Rackham aud-
Two awards are scheduled to be
presented at the meeting. One
honor will be presented for citizen-
ship and the other is to be given on
the basis of recreational activities
and accomplishments. Each girl
attending the state will receive a
certificate of attendance, showing
that she has participated in the
1946 Wolverine Girls' State.
Counselors for the state have been
selected from among the coeds en-
rolled in the recreational leadership
course offered by the University's
Department of Physical Education
for Women.

The notion prevails that if men would only be religious
all our difficulties would be solved. But mten forget that a
man's greatest perversity and society's greatest liability may
be -- religion.
The Nazi party platform contained a most religious
plank; and, not as a fake for the party has lived up to that
plank resolutely, practicing what it called "positive Chris-
tianity" to the last hateful gasp.
And that "positive Christianity" was disturbingly like
